in the united states senate, compromise is being offered on something that 92% of the american people agree with. universal background checks. universal background checks to keep guns out of the hands of terrorists. the united states of america is by adam, an ed american al qaeda on the f.b.i.'s most wanted list who taunts america and says this, you can see it on buzz feed, america is absolutely awash with . sily attainable firearms large capacity clips. you can get them even without ny identification. this from the most wanted on the f.b.i. list. we need to vote in the united states congress. if these young children had the courage to go after their assailant, if the teachers stepped in the way to protect, does congress have the will and the courage to stand up and merely do what it was elected to do? cast a vote in both chambers. cast a vote on behalf of the american people. cast a vote on behalf of these children, on behalf of these parents who have come here to besiege the united states its ess only to do responsibility, to do what we .ake the oath of office for 92% of the american people b
's no ambivalence in the united states senate on the gun issue. everybody in the senate has had to deal with it in their career, it's a debate that needs to take place and to slow or dpoer stall the debate depart make any sense to me. >> congressman, senator, i've got you, i remember covering you as a congressman. senator, i want to ask you one other thing quickly about the senate race, your colleague, saxby chambliss is retiring, are you going to endorse somebody in that race? >> the reason they have primaries is so the people of georgia who want to vote, can pick who the nominee of the republican party is going to be. i'm not going to try to play king maker i'm going to let the people of georgia make that decision. i'm going to miss my dear friend saxby, we've been friends since we entered the university of georgia 51 years ago. he's done a fantastic job, georgia is going to miss him. >> senator johnny isaacson of georgia, thank you for taking the time. >>> next, following the money trail. a look at the money and the methods being used to oppose immigration reform. this is "andrea mit
of a sudden getting something like in this sent to the united states senate, you have to start wondering, is this something being triggered here, something going on? it may turn out not to be so but it's would recollect investigating it from that point of view. >> we have all this break news tonight and i'm not sure how to interpret it. but good news i think in terms of the investigation. waga, our affiliate out of atlanta, has what they believe is the pressure cooker that they got the tape of, and there it is up on the screen. certainly that could be helpful to the police. >> right. tracing where it came from is of and trying to get back to who did it. the bad news is they let go of the guy that they thought was connected to this. now, i mean that means they spent the first day, which is a critical day in any terrorism or murder investigation, they spent the day apparently chasing a wrong lead. now maybe it isn't a wrong lead. maybe they don't have enough and they are letting him go ask want to see what the heckle do. it's hard to tell because we don't have the information they have ins
't able to get this done. despite the fact that a strong majority of the united states senate voted in favor of stronger background checks -- a strong majority -- republicans once again filtered -- pardon me -- filibustered a commonsense proposal. madam president, we were able to get four republicans -- 4 out of 45. yesterday president obama said it was a shameful day for the senate, and it probably was. i agree. but we should make no mistake, this debate is not over. in fact, this fight is just beginning. i've spoken with the president. he and i agree that the best way to keep working towards passing a background check bill is to hit a pause and freeze the background check bill where it is. in the meantime we'll keep moving forward with the people from aurora, colorado; blacksburg, virginia; newtown and other places to make sure that we are able to get something done. thil allow senators to keep negotiating. mr. president -- i'm sorry. madam president, we had nine amendments yesterday. they were not easy to vote on, not for us or for the republicans, and i understand that. but it w
minutes ago, a minority in the united states senate decided it was not worth it. gun blocked commonsense reform even while these families looked on from the senate gallery. by now, it is well-known that 90% of the american people support universal background checks that make it harder harder for a dangerous person to buy a gun. were talking about convicted felons, people convicted of domestic violence, people with severe mental illness. 90% of american support that idea. most americans think that is already the law. a few minutes ago, 90% of democrats in the senate voted for that idea. but it is not going to happen is 90% of republicans in the voted against that idea. a majority of senators voted yes to protecting more of our citizens with smarter background checks. but by this continuing distortion of senate rules, a minority was able to block it from moving forward. i will speak lately and honestly about what happened. the american people are trying to figure out how it didn't happen. we had a democrat and a republican, both gun owners, both fierce defenders of the second amendment wit
in the united states senate, the other body, could that take place. a vote of 54-46 would not pass. and so disheartening as it is and from reeling from the events that have taken place in boston on patriots day, children all across america cannot be reassured by their parents tonight that they are safe, but the n.r.a. will sleep well this evening. mission accomplished. but there's another chamber and an opportunity for the house of representatives to speak its will on the violence that has been perpetrated across this country and the commonsense background checks that are needed here in this country. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has expired. the gentleman yields back. the chair now lays before the house the following personal request. the clerk: leave of absence requested for mr. shimkus of illinois for today and tomorrow. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, the request is granted. the speaker pro tempore: under the speaker's announce d policy mr. barrr, 2013, is recognized. mr. barr: i ask unanimous consent that all members may have five legislative days to subm
of day in the united states senate. and if this bill were to ever pass into law, its impact would be to hurt workers, not help them. how many more times do we need to waste taxpayer dollars on political messaging bills like this rather than pursue legislation that will actually help the middle class? 10 more times? 20 more times? is this all we can expect to accomplish over the next year and a half? americans want democrats and republicans to work together. let's end the political posturing. let's get america back to work. i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back. the gentleman from minnesota. mr. kline: mr. speaker, i yield three minutes to a real leader on this issue, the gentleman from arkansas, mr. womack. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from arkansas is recognized for three minutes. mr. womack: thank you, mr. speaker. i thank the chairman. you know, mr. speaker, our framers were visionaries. they had the foresight to not only establish constitutional principles and processes, that address the challenges of their day, but s
of his party in the united states senate, many of whom just jumped all over him yesterday? >> i think he likes that. i don't think he's -- he is like, look. he got a very favorable "the washington post" editorial and he'll love that. "morning joe." very favorable commentary right here. i guarantee you if he is up watching this right now, got a good david brooks column. he kind of excited this morning. people said this is kind of important to him. the fact all of these guys i'm trying to do something. in his mind, the white house is not totally out of bounds here. they say if we do this it will throw the republicans off and we have put something out there and this is something we would have agreed to any way in the larger context. understand, this president wants a grand bargain. he is going to give away the store in august of 2011. absolutely going to give away the store. he wants that grand bargain. and they view this as the best negotiating strategy and a lot of people disagree with him. they really want this. he genuinely want this. >> going on the lot and offering 26,000 he has the o

"happening now.". rick: fox news alert. news out of d.c. the united states senate rejected effort to block debate on new gun control legislation. the senate voting 68-31 to allow debate to go on. 16 republican senators voted in favor of the debate. two democrats voted against the debate. this does not mean all of sudden there are new gun laws on the books. it simply means the senate will debate new gun legislation for the first time in 20 years. the deal worked out, bipartisan deal on expanded background checks will most likely be a part of what they will be debating. there will be other amendments as well. still a long way to go before any new gun legislation gets to the president's desk. but the first hurdle at least has been overcome. jenna: more on that as we get it. meantime the dairy industry is looking for a sweet deal, pun intended hoping to add sweetener to make. fda considering this proposal but the plan is coming under fire from some farmers and as well as some consumer groups as well. doug kennedy is live at our new york city newsroom. not to confuse my dougs in my life. there
could come up as early as tomorrow in the united states senate. but everything -- everything was just put aside. everything was put on the back burner once news of that terrorist attack at the end of the boston marathon yesterday happened. that news spread around the world and this is where the focus has been. it has been the focus of our program this morning as well here on the "full court press." something you're going to want to comment and talk about. give us a call at 1-866-55-press. or send us your comments on twitter at bpshow and on facebook at facebook.com. /billpressshow. >> remember, we're on twitter at bpshow, as you mentioned. we're getting a lot of comments, a lot of stories a lot of reaction. feel free to reach out. let us know what your experience was like and what you saw. we're getting a lot of great stories there. find us there. >> bill: yes. peter, just -- we're juggling events here as we go. we'll be going up to boston shortly to talk to melanie who is in boston. has been covering the events up there. will bring us up to date on the latest on the police investigat
floor as well as in cooperation with their colleagues and ours at the united states senate. i urge my colleagues to vote no on the rule and yes on the underlying bill and i would yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back his time. the gentleman from georgia. mr. woodall: thank you, mr. speaker. i yield myself the balance of me time. i thank my friend from florida for his service on the rules committee and his service on the intelligence committee. the work that goes on on the intelligence committee, mr. speaker is work that so many members of congress co-not involve themselves in. it goes on deep in the bowls of the cap -- bowels of the capitol complex, it's great security, all electronic devices left outside the door, they can discuss things within the four twhifles committee that we're not allowed to discuss things. when they asked me to hand they will rule, i was concerned, because throughout this process of developing cispa, i've traveled down to that committee room time and time again in order to understand the threats that this nation
that seek to stop the flow of undocumented immigrants to the united states. republican senator marco rubio of florida, a member of the group, the so-called gang of eight, hit the rounds sunday to talk shows with a preview of the plan which includes three main policy steps. here he was. >> first of all a universally verified system which means you won't be able to find a job in the united states if you can't pass that check. second an entry exit check. 40% of people enter legally and overstay their visas. we don't track when they leave. and third is real border security including fences. >> senator rubio insists the plan does not amount to amnesty. he claims millions of undocumented immigrants now in the u.s. would not be able to become citizens for more than a decade. >> he made seven sunday shows. it will be interesting to see how that goes. 38 minutes after the hour. look at some of the stories trending this morning. was this justs bieber being beebe e? the singer and pop legend getting some heat for what he wrote in the guest book to anne frank's house where frank and her family 4id fro
. these concerns continue in the united states senate today. about emails thing that was raised again by senator boozman. i explain my idea of having a secondary email was started by christie todd whitman and is continued by democrats and the balkans following. one republican had as a moniker, tofu@epa.com. in order to figure out what they need to answer, they have done that. i would like to ask you for the record, i understand the epa inspector general is looking into the agency's emailed management practices. are you aware of this ever and could you describe us what you know as of this date how that is going? >> inspector general is doing an audit, which we are participating in. i certainly feel and i believe the agency does as well that it is a great opportunity for us to have their independent view of what we can do well and approval on. the acting administrator is working closely with them and we are going to be taking their recommendations to heart and doing everything we can improve the system at epa, as we always would. >> ok. i will yield my time to senator vitters. i have to ask you --
: i think the senate of the united states let the american people down yesterday. it was hard for me to fathom some of the basic provisions that enjoyed the support of over 90 percent of americans were voted down. a majority of the senate supported it, but as you know, we have the rules that require 60 votes to a dance certain provisions. certainvance provisions. ad was probably my most disappointing day so far in my short tenure. host: are there a lot of nra members or gun owners in wisconsin? guest: there are many gun owners, just like the country, wisconsin is reflective of that, but i would say the hunting culture and tradition is very deep. if you think about last year's deer hunting season, over 650,000 hunting licenses were taken out in wisconsin. that is over 10 percent of the that participate in the enjoy is the tradition of hunting deer. there are other hunting seasons also. expandingdea of background checks and reducing the% of sales that take place without a background check was widely embraced. and the measures against trafficking. we all know too many of the incidence o
states. that's not necessarily true. you can get semiautomatic weapons in the united states pretty easily. so that debate kind of goes on, brooke. >> and the debate in the senate begins as well. joe johns, thank you. >>> bottom of the hour, i'm brooke baldwin. technology, sports business, health, science, news, we're hitting it all for you right now in what we call the power block beginning with your money. take a look. dow up 50 points. half hour until the closing bell. the climb as we've sort of seen all week long. let's go to alison kosik live at the stock exchange with more good news. what is it that's leading all these huge gains we're seeing? >> that really is the money question. it isn't one thing propelling it. part of it is the economy. most of it is the fed stimulating the economy with billions of dollars and you have investors seeing the headlines of the records every day. they want toup on the train before it leaves the station. also this is the tail end of historically what's been the best for stocks. coming into summer the market historically doesn't do as well. sam sobel, h
a magnet that's attracted people to come into the united states illegally in order to access the amnesty plan that they're devising in the senate and they're devising behind closed doors here in the house. now, amnesty, some of them have even tried to define amnesty. i've consistently defined it, mr. speaker. to grant amnesty is to pardon immigration law breakers and reward them with the objective of their crime. that's a pardon and a reward. that's what's in this document, about 1,500 pages that will emerge in a day or so. if we are to pardon and reward and instantly legalize everyone here in the united states, with the exception of those who committed a felony or three misdemeanors, what are we to expect? even with this bill, they would reach out and say to people if you have been deported come back to america and you can sign up under our plan, it is called the r.p.i. plan, it's a little bit bizarre so i didn't get the -- it's the registered provisional immigrant status plan. so this country would offer such a thing to people who have already been adjudicated and sent back to their ho
-hour conversation between the senate and the president of the united states about the most substantial issues that we face in debate on the floor and got a better understanding from where everybody is coming from and a better understanding of where we need to get to. >> brian: when you made up the roster, why was it important that marco rubio be on it? >> well, i love all my senate colleagues. i picked the 11 other people other than myself that i thought represented the south, the north, the midwest and the west, both in the political spectrum, new england, moderates, right of center. i tried to get a good coalition that represented what the senate republicans stood for. >> brian: marco rubio was able to come. in terms of an engagement, was there anyone who engaged more with the president when it came to economic issue, guns or immigration? >> no, in fact, immigration came up a little, same thing in terms of guns. most of the discussion was about fiscal policy, about the tax policy, about revenues, about entitlements. that was the gist of the meeting and the heart of the meeting. >> brian: wh
of the united states, which is in his statement of administrative policy, which i entered into the record last night in the rules committee. and just as importantly, a bill that has no positive impact on the most important issue facing our country today, job creation, economic growth. mr. speaker, this bill is an attack on american workers, this bill is an attack on american businesses. pure and simple h.r. 1120 would effectively shut down the national labor relations board, invalidate all 569 decisions that the nlrb made between january 12 and march of this year. my colleagues claim this is a response to the d.c. circuit court decision. but when have we ever enshrined an intermediate court decision into statute? it makes absolutely no sense. this court decision found that nearly all recess appointments are invalid, but the reality is the decision of the d.c. circuit conflicts entirely with judicial precedent and past practices. president reagan made 232 recess appointments. george h.w. bush made 78. george w. bush made 171. so far president obama has made 3 . -- 32. far less than his predeces
and now that every strategic plan i built over the years with the united states air force always was a plan. plans are always in contrast. a change. and so we have and will continue to improve upon a plan. >> was it developed to be aspirational or was it developed to give us an accurate blueprint of help va perceives? >> i think in all planning there is an aspect of aspiration at the beginning and then it is with assumptions and the availability of resources, it is adjusted for what we think is achievable. a long-term plan, like this one, with as much dynamics involved, we make an assumption, for example, that the flow of veterans out of uniform to the va is going to follow a pattern that we have been provided by the department of defense. if that changes that adjustment then we will have to look and see whether we can accommodate the change. if not we will have to say we have to resource. >> thank you very much. i look forward to sitting down with you to look at the matrix that brought about such a change in release three months. let me just say, i really wasn't addressing the i
were blown away at point-blank range, and the united states congress woman who was shot in the face and we can't even get enough democrats to vote for this? where are we politically in america and where do we go from here? >> you may hear from my tone that i'm a little bit of horse. this is a different reaction than i usually have. i write a column purple nation where i try to look at things both ways. i am somewhat astonished but i see no nuance on the question to democrats how could you not allow a vote on this? and i want those names, and they may be friends of mine i'm hoping they are not -- i have grown up with a lot of people in the senate and house -- but i want those names on the front page of every newspaper, and i want president obama with those names on a billboard at the press conference, the time has come for the president to have a sister soldier moment and stand up to his own party as well as of course through a majority of republicans who are in the tank for the nra in not in any way excusing republicans, but the immorality of not allowing a vo
. senator? >> thank you. thank you, governor and thank you, mr. mayor. the president of the united states has pledged his full support in all efforts both to keep the city safe and to find the person who did this and bring them to justice. we did not have to reach out to the president. the president reached out to us. he called the governor, he called the mayor, he called the members of the delegation because the president is actively involved here and responding. on behalf of our congressional delegation, senator cowan is here with me and congressman lynch and all of the members of our delegation we want to extend our thanks to the first-responders, to the firefighters, to the police officers to the ems, to everyone on scene including volunteers who came and helped those in trouble and helped save lives. we also want to thank those from all around the country and all around the world whose prayers and thoughts and offers of help have poured in we are deeply grateful. as the mayor says, boston will survive. >> thank you, governor. good morning my name is rick deslauriers. i'm the special
